 In re: Chapter 9 City of Detroit, Michigan, Case No. 13-53846 Debtor. Hon. Steven W. Rhodes /
Fifth Amended Order Establishing Procedures, Deadlines and
Hearing Dates Relating to the Debtor’s Plan of Adjustment
 The City has filed a plan of adjustment and a proposed disclosure statement. To promote the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of this case as required by Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1001, the Court hereby establishes the procedures, deadlines and hearing dates set forth below. The Court has carefully considered the latest requests of certain objecting parties to adjourn the confirmation hearing and the associated dates and deadlines. The Court concludes that the record does establish cause for the limited adjournments of hearing dates and the limited extensions of deadlines set forth in this order. However, the Court again concludes that the record fails to establish cause for the lengths of the adjournments and extensions that these creditors have requested. In exercising its discretion to limit this adjournment as set forth in this order, the Court has considered the interests of the objecting parties in having a full opportunity to prepare for the complex legal and factual issues that will be presented at the confirmation hearing. The Court has also considered the City’s unfortunate delays in producing requested documents and the resulting impairment of the objecting parties’ ability to prepare for the scheduled confirmation hearing. At the same time, however, the Court has also considered that to an unfortunate extent, certain document production requests, and especially certain document  production requests that Syncora has submitted, have been unreasonable and that these unreasonable document production requests significantly contributed to the delays in the City’s document production. Finally, the Court has also considered the interests of other stakeholders in the prompt resolution of this case. These stakeholders include the City itself and its administration, the State of Michigan, the several creditors who have settled with the City, the City’s employees and retirees, and, perhaps most importantly, the residents of the City, southeast Michigan and the State of Michigan. In its discretion, the Court concludes that a balancing of these interests justifies the limited adjournments and extensions granted herein.
